A Slum Symphony

( Italy / 2010 )
A natural born talent, Angelica first picked up a violin aged 10 but it’s as if she’s played all her life. Wilfrido is the first one in his family to travel - or to receive a standing ovation at Carnegie Hall. Will Heidi stay with the tuba while her barrio descends into hell? Will Jonathan's cello save him from his brothers' drug abuse and homelessness? And what will happen to Fabio, an orphan, when he moves away from the music school?
Through the years, we understand how music changed their lives: from the first lessons to concerts around the world with famous conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Simon Rattle and Lorin Maazel.
